Well ok Kesha, maybe it’s because you’re an auto tuned peice of shit who shouldn’t be famous, you have no Buisness being in the music industry, it’s not even your music you fuck, someone else wrote it for you to record and them to auto tune yourself. And it’s not at all good . It’s not positive either. So complain some more.
I don’t know if you know this, tumblr user koolkidseatgreens, but Ke$ha is a certified genius. She has an IQ over 140 and an SAT score of 1500. When she was younger she would go to the library and do research for fun. Ke$ha is a both feminist and an advocate for equal marriage/rights for people of any sexuality, being a queer woman herself.
Ke$ha is a smart, professional woman, and just because she sings songs about wanting to let loose and have fun every once in a while doesn’t make her a piece of shit.
Ke$ha’s songs are meant to point out the sexism in our media. She treats men the same way many men in the music industry treat women, and she is hated on for it. Relentlessly. She sings on multiple occasions about taking charge in a sexual relationship, of how she only uses men for their body parts. She sexualizes men to make them uncomfortable. She sexualizes men for a reaction, so that people can both see why women are so uncomfortable with their sexualization and also to point out the inequality between the sexes both in the media and in the world at large.
She is judged so harshly for singing about things that make many men famous.
If you listen to Ke$ha’s deconstructed album you will see that she actually has some talent, which may be hard to hear because she does in fact use a fair amount of autotune. This is because of her genre and because of the kind of music she chooses to create as an artist. Ke$ha may not write her songs, but this doesn’t meant she isn’t a good artist or a good person. This doesn’t mean she deserves your harsh words. Some singers are good at writing, but that’s hardly a requirement. Last time I checked whether or not you can sing has nothing to do with whether or not you’re a poet.
You should not be calling anyone a piece of shit, my friend, especially someone you’ve never sat down and had a conversation (or even taken the time to wonder about her feelings!), but if anyone deserves that kind of language it’s not Ke$ha.
You may think that by shaming women for expressing their sexuality and having fun every once in a while, that you are somehow abolishing sexism. That in weeding out the less ‘deserving’ women you are gaining our sex more respect. This is not the case, and the fact that you and many others feel such a strong need to shame this woman who has done nothing wrong, especially not to you, shows that we still have a very far away to go.
We’re fifteen minutes into a conversation
And the messages in the media
And the way young girls are taught to rather starve
than be fat
And the way young women walk on egg shells
when the walk in question
Is after 9 pm
On a Tuesday
To her mothers house
We talk about how it feels to be female
How It feels to be violated
We talk about female infanticide
And we talk about the wage gap
And the way men sit on the bus
And we talk about issues
But then I say “and as white feminists”
And her flag goes up
Because she’d rather talk about the persecution of her bust
Than the way that
Wage gap aside
She still makes more
than black guys
Because rape culture doesn’t mean shit to her
When its acknowledging that
Women of Color
Get the short end of
the already shitty stick
and when it’s asserted that a black woman
saying she was raped
is treated with the same dignity
as that one kid who cried wolf
she claims exclusion
but she says shes not racist
no body said she was
There mere idea of a feminism
That doesn’t involve
Look like her
Exist like her
Suffer like her
Is too scary a thought
For a brief second in a haze of
She knows what it feels like to be
a black woman
So she’s not even a tertiary character, she’s like quadrary or something. She hasn’t even got a name, and everything we know about her comes from one scene. Also, she’s got the rather dubious distinction of being Ramsay’s mother, considering most fans, including myself, are absolutely terrified by him.
So I have seen absolutely zero meta on her, which I would like to remedy, since to me there’s a lot of discussion potential considering what little we know.
